Once you've converted XML to Lisp you lose all XML-level access, transformation,
etc.  IOW, once in Lispland, no XPath, XQuery, XSLT,...  If your processing of
XML also involves, well, XML processing (e.g. XQuery transformations) that is
part of the given, then you've lost that.

IOW, conversion to conses and processing using Lisp can be useful, but depending
on your context there can be a cost.
